Slow Cooker Recipes with Scotch Beef, Lamb and Specially Selected Pork

Over the past month I've been working on a project to develop some slow cooker recipes in conjunction with Quality Meat Scotland for their Good Family Food Facebook Page. I'm delighted to now share the first three using Scotch Beef, Scotch Lamb and Specially Selected Pork.



Slow Cooked Lamb Shanks with Red Wine and Butter Beans
Serves 4 

INGREDIENTS
4 Scotch Lamb Shanks
2 Tbsp Plain Flour
Salt & Pepper
1 Leek
2 Shallots
2 Cloves Garlic
400g Tin of Butter Beans
250ml Lamb Stock
250ml Red Wine
2 Sprigs Fresh Rosemary
Slow Cooked Lamb Shanks with Red Wine and Butter Beans
METHOD
Coat the Scotch lamb shanks with the flour mixed with salt and pepper and place in the bottom of the slow cooker crock pot.
Peel and slice the shallots, crush the garlic and slice and thoroughly wash the leeks. Add all of the prepared vegetables to the slow cooker.
Drain the butter beans and tip them into the crock.
Make up 250ml of lamb stock and pour into the slow cooker crock along with the red wine.
Nestle a couple of sprigs of rosemary in amongst the lamb shanks.
Put the lid on the slow cooker and cook on low for 8 hours.
Prior to dishing up, remove the rosemary sprigs and skim off any visible fat.
Serve with lots of creamy mashed potato

Slow Cooked Scotch Beef with Sweet Potato and Chorizo
Serves 4

INGREDIENTS
500g Cubed Stewing Steak 
2 Tbsp Plain Flour
Salt & Pepper
1 Tbsp Sweet Smoked Paprika
150g Chorizo
400g Sweet Potatoes
1 Onion, sliced
2 Cloves Garlic Crushed
1 Red and 1 Orange Pepper
500ml Beef Stock
2 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
Sour Cream to serve (optional)
Slow Cooked Scotch Beef with Sweet Potato and Chorizo
METHOD
Coat the Scotch beef cubes with the flour mixed with the salt, pepper and smoked paprika.
Peel and slice the chorizo and add it to the slow cooker crock pot along with the beef.
Peel and chop the sweet potatoes into bite sized cubes, slice the onions, crush the garlic and core, deseed and chop the peppers. Add all of the prepared vegetables to the slow cooker.
Make up 500ml of beef stock and add 2 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce. Pour the liquid into the slow cooker crock and give everything a good stir.
Put the lid on the slow cooker and cook on low for 8 hours.
Serve on a bed of bulgur wheat topped with soured cream and a sprinkling of sweet smoked paprika.

Slow Cooked Pork, Pumpkin, Apple & Ginger Casserole
Serves 4

INGREDIENTS
500g Cubed Pork Leg
Salt & Pepper
440ml Cider (or apple juice)
2 Shallots (or 1 Onion) chopped
3 balls of Stem Ginger in Syrup, plus 2 Tbsp of the Syrup
2 Red British Apples – 1 roughly chopped and 1 coarsely grated
1 small Pumpkin or Butternut Squash
Crème Fraiche (optional)
Slow Cooked Pork, Pumpkin, Apple & Ginger Casserole
METHOD
Season the cubed pork with salt and pepper and place it in the slow cooker crock pot. 
Pour over the cider or apple juice.
Chop the shallots and grate three balls of stem ginger. Add both to the slow cooker along with 2 Tablespoons of the syrup from the jar of ginger.
Core and roughly chop one of the apples, keeping the skin on. Peel and roughly grate the second apple. This will help to thicken the casserole and make its own apple sauce. Add both prepared apples to the slow cooker.
Peel, deseed and cube your pumpkin or squash (no need to remove the skin if you are using a butternut squash as it will soften beautifully in the slow cooker). Alternatively if you are going to be carving your pumpkin you can scoop out the inner flesh in shards.
Add the pumpkin flesh to the slow cooker crock and give everything a good stir.
Put the lid on the slow cooker and cook on low for 8 hours.
Optional - Before serving stir through a couple of tablespoons of crème fraiche. 
Serve with grainy mustard mash and greens stir-fried in Scottish rapeseed oil.
